Rather freakily, as I was getting this image of the Isle Of Dee before the storm caused by the tier monster sunk the island, “We’ll Meet Again” started playing on the stream from the machinima expo. Which is very fitting because for many of the evacuees from the old Isle Of Dee, they will indeed be meeting again.
The calm before the storm above was soon replaced by Dee sinking beneath the waves, even the Goblin King couldn’t escape the barrage:
The citizens fled, on ships, there are always ships involved. Tales of the adventures that took place on those ships may or may not be told:
Those ships took the hardy citizens to a halfway house but now I’m reliably informed they’ve also found a new place to call home.
My chief Elf poked me asking me why I hadn’t blogged about the festival on my sim where she’s the admin……. erm I was playing Diablo III and forgot isn’t a good excuse, so I tried to perform magic on her but she just glared and handed me some notes. Now first thing, this is on a roleplaying sim and medieval or mythical attire is required for this event, it’s not required for all events but it is for this one, however if you fancy popping along free avatars are provided. Now for some blurb.
Hear ye Hear ye!
Traditionally, the Isle of Dee Citizens celebrate St Vitus Day with a Festival of games, shows, competitions, wondrous wonders, surprising surprises!

So one of the surprises could be me forgetting to blog about it? Umm The Elf just shakes her head and tells me that’s no surprise. Ok so time to blog about what is happening. but first here’s what happened yesterday:
FRIDAY, 14th June, Opening Day
All the day: Games Carnivale Circus

And here’s what you’ve missed so far today:

11 AM slt – Silent Poems
However all is not lost, because there’s still stuff to come! Which I’ll list below the cut.
I’m a tad concerned about my chief Elf, she seems to have started writing in the style of me! Anyway, we’re having a festival on my roleplaying sim, it would be better if you tried to fit in with the surroundings if you do visit, there are free outfits available. Details at this point are a bit sketchy, but it seems to involve beer, women and dancing round the Maypole! Official notice below:
MAY FESTIVAL IN DEE
Come and join our celebrations of the return of the sun from its long winter slumber and the re-awakening of the land.
Quaff tankards of foaming ale in the ‘Cock a Hoop’ Tavern; Dance around the Maypole with lusty maidens; drag one off and throw up in the bushes…. no hold on that should be ‘drag one off and throw her in the bushes.
My Chief Elf has poked me to remind me that there’s a Bellydancing show taking place at 4pm SLT tonight at The Isle Of Dee, you really don’t want to be poked by your Chief Elf, so I thought I better post about it.
